Breaking exclusive: NLU Delhi will battle National University of Singapore (NUS) in the finals of the prestigious Asia Pacific rounds of the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot, the decisive moot in the second edition of the Mooting Premier League sponsored by Allen & Overy, which saw a three Indian teams in the Jakarta-based semi-finals.
The all-third-year NLU Delhi team consists of veteran mooter Hardeep Singh with Aditya Sharma and Nishith Mishra.
This Tier 2 Global Championship Moot awards a massive 30 points for a win and 25 for a runner-up and 15 points for semi-finalists with high points also going for honourable mentions and individual citations.
Nalsar is now a guaranteed MPL 2 winner but NLU Delhi is poised to take the third position from NLSIU Bangalore and perhaps also leapfrog NUJS Kolkata after this moot, if the team gathers any individual citations.
NLU Delhi is only 29 points behind NLSIU Bangalore and 32 points below NUJS Kolkata, the third and second-ranked colleges respectively.
The final will take place at roughly 4pm Indian time in Indonesia, Jakarta.
In 2010 NLSIU Bangalore lost in the Asia Pacific finals of the Manfred Lachs to NUS, just missing out on defending its 2009 Manfred Lachs world title.
